Our priority is the learner. Always.

Our mission is to provide comparisons and recommendations for foreign language learners, so they do not waste any unncessary time on poor learning products and overpriced solutions.

So, how do we make money? Our partners compensate us, at no additional cost to the learner. This can influence the positioning of certain elements on Actual Fluency, but it never influences our recommendations, and reviews which are based on years of experience in the field. We do not accept payment in exchange for favourable reviews, or paid link placements. Here is a list of our partners.

AFP 03 – Judith Meyer: An Incredible Language Learning Journey

(Last Updated On: April 27, 2020)

On this episode of the Actual Fluency Podcast I welcome on Judith Meyer. Judith is a very well-known polyglot and speaks over 12 languages. During the recording we touch on many areas such as how to learn, how to set goals to get motivated and whether or not you should learn Latin or other ancient languages.

judithmeyerJudith is very passionate about learning languages and shares a ton of great tips and tricks on how to learn languages within today's episode. She also organises the PolyGlot Berlin gathering, that I will be attending in June. Be sure to listen at the end of the Podcast, where she reveals a little fun event of the gathering that she has not announced anywhere yet.
